Rhubarb Chia Jam

My mama brought me some rhubarb from her garden recently and I didn't want to make another strawberry rhubarb crumble with it. I was brainstorming one day and thought about rhubarb chia jam. Of course, once I googled it, there were already plenty of recipes for the same idea, so I adapted a couple of those!

  1. I love regular rhubarb jam, but this chia version wound really tasty too!

  2. I add chia seeds to my morning smoothie each day but have never tried them in anything else. Fresh rhubarb is hard to get down here but frozen is readily available, so I'm going to try this recipe with frozen rhubarb.

  3. Ok, it's confession time...I've been hearing so much about chia seeds, I think it's time for me to get on board! This rhubarb chia jam looks absolutely amazing and simple to make, love how you paired it with the yogurt, definitely need to try this!
